About Rebecca

Hello potential students,

My name is Rebecca, and I graduated from Harvard in 2013. I majored in Filmmaking and minored in Music. My background is mostly in documentary fiction, but I have experience with screenwriting and visual storytelling as well. In music, I was mostly interested in singing and composition. Before I settled on filmmaking, I considered English, Biology, and Drama, so I have a good amount of experience with these subjects as well. Additionally, I specialize in essay writing, proofreading, and reading comprehension.

Since I spend so much time directing and editing films, I can teach you about photography and video production, including how to use editing suites such as Final Cut Pro, Avid, and Photoshop. If you give me a few days' notice, I can accommodate other subjects as well, such as SAT testing, basic math, etc.

My experience includes teaching a group of 10th and 11th grade students about English and Drama, as well as helping younger students with reading. I believe that tutoring requires patience and guidance, as well as the encouragement needed to pursue learning and discovery, without the fear of failure.

If you have any questions, please be in touch. I look forward to working with you.

Best,
Rebecca

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Film

I have a degree in Filmmaking from Harvard University. I studied nonfiction filmmaking under Robb Moss and Ross McElwee, and fiction with Jan Shuette and Gina Kim. I have been working as a freelance director, DP, and editor for the past three years. Additionally, I have completed several films that are currently in consideration in the festival circuit.
